    1. Clinical features and visual function in a patient with Fish-eye disease: Quantitative measurements and optical coherence tomography

      Clinical features and visual function in a patient with Fish-eye disease: Quantitative measurements and optical coherence tomography

      Purpose We describe a case of fish-eye disease (FED) where the clinical features and visual function were investigated using anterior segment optical coherence tomography (OCT) and quantitative measurements. Observations A 36-year-old Japanese woman with FED presented with bilateral corneal opacities and visual complaints. Both contrast sensitivity and straylight were measured and OCT imaging was performed. Contrast sensitivity and straylight measurements revealed remarkably decreased visual function, despite good visual acuity. OCT demonstrated homogenously hyper-reflective corneal opacification, and a normal total corneal thickness. Conclusions and Importance The findings from this case suggest that OCT is useful for analyzing the clinical features of ...

    2. Optical coherence tomography angiography changes in radial peripapillary capillaries in Leber hereditary optic neuropathy

      Optical coherence tomography angiography changes in radial peripapillary capillaries in Leber hereditary optic neuropathy

      Purpose To present a report of longitudinal changes in radial peripapillary capillaries (RPC) and changes in retinal full thickness (RFT) and peripapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) in a patient with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy (LHON). Observations A 42-year-old man presented with acute- and presymptomatic-stage LHON in the left (OS) and right (OD) eyes, respectively, at the initial visit. Onset of LHON in the OD was observed 2 months after the initial visit. Once the temporal RNFL started to decrease in thickness, the areas of temporal RPC defects and RFT thinning gradually increased, indicating that these factors might be correlated ...

    3. Optical coherence tomography angiography of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis

      Purpose Diffuse unilateral subacute neuroretinitis (DUSN) is often a challenging diagnosis to make. We present a DUSN case with its multimodal imaging to aid in the diagnosis, emphasizing the observations on optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA). Observations The evolution of a DUSN case is presented. Fundus photography and OCTA aided in the identification of the nematode. Conclusions and importance DUSN is a difficult diagnosis to establish. We report the first case to our knowledge in which OCTA aided in the diagnosis of DUSN.

    4. Recovery of outer retinal laminations on optical coherence tomography after treatment of cancer associated retinopathy

      Recovery of outer retinal laminations on optical coherence tomography after treatment of cancer associated retinopathy

      Purpose To report novel optical coherence tomography findings in a case of anti-α-enolase cancer associated retinopathy. Observations An elderly female presented with bilateral decreased vision and a recent diagnosis of ovarian carcinoma. Optical coherence tomography demonstrated bilateral loss of outer retinal structures and macular edema. Serum testing found antibodies against α-enolase and 82–84 kDa proteins. Outer retinal structures showed recovery, macular edema resolved and repeat anti-retinal antibody testing became negative following cancer therapy and topical difluprednate treatment. Conclusions and Importance: Cancer associated retinopathy is a paraneoplastic disease that results in damage to retinal structures through an autoimmune response ...

    5. Optical coherence tomography angiography of iris microhemangiomatosis

      Optical coherence tomography angiography of iris microhemangiomatosis

      Purpose To report optical coherence tomography angiography (OCTA) of iris microhemangiomatosis. Observations A 75-year-old asymptomatic Caucasian man was found to have bilateral pupillary vascular lesions during cataract evaluation. Visual acuity was counting fingers in the right eye (OD) and 20/40 in the left eye (OS) with normal intraocular pressures in both eyes (OU). In each eye there were multifocal, round, dark red, pinpoint vascular tufts at the pupillary margin, randomly distributed and numbering 1 in OD and 7 in OS, each measuring 0.2–0.3 mm in diameter and without active bleeding or hyphema. Fundus examination OU was ...
